Flatsharing reimagined

Today's flatsharers are a fast growing group and will soon make up the most popular way of living in the UK. Ideal Flatmate strongly believes this is a good thing and was created to help make finding the right person to live with as easy as possible!

We know from personal experience how difficult finding the right group of housemates can be, and how disastrous it is when things don't work out. That's why we are putting people and personality at the heart of the flatsharing experience.

Our unique matching algorithm makes it easier for the rapidly growing number of flatsharers to find their most suitable living partners. All it takes is a couple of minutes to answer our 20 question survey about your living habits! By bringing together groups, of well-matched flatsharers, we also provide landlords with a ready supply of more reliable tenants.

Join the 10,000s who have already signed up and started meeting their new flatmates here.

Worst flatmate experience?

"Some of my ex-flatmates would probably say I was the worst person to live with, and my current flatmate would certainly agree that I am not the best at getting chores done. The worst experience though was when two flatmates fell out in a big way, putting a lot of strain on the rest of the house!"

Worst flatmate experience?

"I once came home from work and caught two of my flatmates having an "intimate moment" in the kitchen. Turns out this had been going on for some time and they had been keeping things quiet! House dynamics changed a bit after that."
